Panic-stricken Stephanie Holland, 31, desperately tried to stem the flow of blood from Danny’s wounds after moped muggers knifed him in the worst sustained stabbing police have ever seen. Yesterday she wept as she told The Sun how she believed the monstrous pair were pulling a bad-taste prank when they stepped out in balaclavas - like a duo from a cartoon strip wielding a hunting blade and a gun.
